Season 31 Tier List: Solo Greater Rift Push Build Rankings

Last updated on Jan 12, 2024 at 12:40 by Impakt 8 comments

This page goes over the current state of each class in Season 25 in respect to their solo clearing capabilities and provides a full ranking of each build currently available on the site.


Top Solo Greater Rift Pushing Builds for each Class



In Season 28, Raekor was reworked and massively buffed to primarily benefit Boulder Toss. This along with several other Barbarian builds dominated the leaderboards that season, but that was also primarily due to the massive seasonal theme power that Barbs had access to. Boulder Toss still retains an incredible amount of power coming into this season, and should be the go-to Barbarian build for solo pushing.



Most Crusader builds have received some massive buffs coming into the final balance patch of Diablo 3. Most Crusader builds will be incredibly strong for solo-pushing, so the top build could easily change with new knowledge or depending on your play style. However, Akkhans is tanky, reliable, and deals consistent damage in a way that is sure to reward those who want to push as high as possible.


Demon Hunter

New in Season 28, Natalya's has been reworked to be build around Spike Traps. This is an extremely powerful, but complex build that requires a multiple-button setup, solid positioning, and practice to execute well. Demon Hunters overall are looking quite strong in the new season, so if you are looking for a challenge, definitely give the class a shot.



Monk is another class that is receiving very little in the way of changes for Season 29. We can expect the meta for monks to stay roughly the same, which means LoD Wave of Light will still be the go-to build for endgame pushing.



Necromancers are got several powerful new builds in season 29, including some massive buffs to the Death Nova builds. These absolutely dominated the leaderboards in Season 28, and we expect the Death Nova Necro to be one of the few builds capable of clearing a GR 150 solo this season.


Witch Doctor

Mundunugu is once again looking like the set of choice for Witch Doctors. Mundunugu is exceptional at dealing huge burst damage to small areas of targets, which is hard to pull off well. However, with good enough play you can produce massive explosions that will decimate huge groups of enemies, or bosses. The Arachyr Chicken Witch Doctor build also looks quite promising after some massive buffs and reworks last season, but even with all of the balance changes the Mundunugu Witch Doctor will likely reign supreme.



After some changes in Season 28, Meteor Wizards are looking to be extremely powerful once again. The ability to run both Meteor Shower and Star Pact as runes should make both Tal Rasha and LoD potent builds capable of clearing at the highest level. These were already capable of GR 150 solo in Season 28, and Wizards should once again be capable of the same feat.


Full Build Tier List

The difference between the tiers below is roughly equal to 5 GR levels. Also remember that builds evolve and adapt, and the tier list below will almost certainly end up over or undervaluing some builds as they play out over the season. This list is by now means set in stone, and has plenty of room for change as we learn more about the new builds.
